Nursing professional development practitioners led the evaluation of the graphic representation of a health system’s professional practice model (PPM) based on evolving expectations and key constructs of a PPM. The aim was to capture direct care nurse perceptions to guide adoption of a revised graphical depiction of the PPM. The specific benefit for nursing professional development practitioners is the ongoing relatability of the PPM to nursing for sustainability of clinical excellence.
